Written notes to complement the reading


The Kobo Elipsa display is a E-Ink 10.3-inch e-ink, anti-reflective and adjustable brightness ComfortLight. The panel will allow it to adapt to the light of the time of day and with the Carta 1200 E Ink panel we are promised a faster page change and a darker contrast, to also enjoy the included dark mode.

Inside we have a 32GB storage, 1 GB of RAM and comes with a software developed by Rakuten Kobo. In addition to the Stylus we have a ‘SleepCover’ case and a 2,400 mAh battery.

The main addition and on which the whole experience revolves is the Kobo Stylus, a pencil with which we can mark, highlight and annotate in eBooks and PDF files that allow making annotations. As explained by the brand, these annotations will be as if we were writing with a pen and several strokes will be allowed: be it shadow, lines or erasure.

With the My Notebooks functionality, the Kobo Elipsa will allow quick access to these annotations. The handwriting is powered by MyScript and we are offered a range of notebook backgrounds with striped, squared or blank pages.

Kobo adds connection with Dropbox to easily import documents and / or share the notebooks that we have written from the device.
